    "....interviewing the leading experts in the world about focus. What I learned persuaded me that we are not now facing simply a normal anxiety about attention, of the kind every generation goes through as it ages. We are living in a serious attention crisis – one with huge implications for how we live. I learned there are twelve factors that have been proven to reduce people’s ability to pay attention and that many of these factors have been rising in the past few decades – sometimes dramatically."

    True ...... but that article does exactly what its talking about . I had difficulty reading it because the writter spammed trhe whole article full with irelevant / trivial crap .

    Internet , iphones and co , TV , news are all time stealers , shapers and conditioners ........ things that should be sorted by the victim........... but cant be because of info flood . Its being used and abused and the governments look the other way . Its all about farming slaves .

    Frighten them , give the an uneducation in schools , flood them with useless information .......... and then stear them = exploit them and milk them .

    It starts in supermarkets ......... with music to make people feel at home and take their attention .......... while bombing them with adverts .......... trying to confuse them and stear them to buy crap , more crap and expensive crap .

    Genuine critique of the system of entertainment ("forgetting it all" and "mindless abandonment" of Hollywood and such like) could have started it, long ago...

    But the new technology needs further differentiations, new definitions of instrumentalising and enslaving a Human Being in all spheres possible...

    Nope, not true! It is designed for a set of specific purposes and it will be used precisely for the purposes the owners want it to be used for...
